In July 2003, the government of President Álvaro Uribe took the unprecedented step of opening formal peace talks with the AUC. Although close to 900 paramilitary fighters demobilized last year, issues such as paramilitary involvement in drug trafficking and accountability for human rights abuses have raised controversy in Colombia and abroad. The Wilson Center conference aims to explore key issues in the Government-AUC peace talks, the prospects for an eventual negotiated settlement, and the key challenges ahead. Video of both the Director's Forum and the Panel discussion is available here. Summaries of both the Director's Forum and the Panel discussion are available in the Summary section.
